Free Album Streaming: New CDs from Jack White, Dry the River, Norah Jones, & More

Jack White's debut solo album "Blunderbuss" is the proverbial 800-pound gorilla of the new and upcoming releases available for streaming now. It's available not through one of the usual streaming websites but through iTunes, which says only that you can preview it for a "limited time only." Since that could only be a few days, head to this link soon to preview Jack White's "Blunderbuss," which comes out April 24th. (Below see his recent "Saturday Night Live" performance of "Sixteen Saltines," which is on the new album.)

Also, Jack White will performing at Webster Hall on April 27th; tickets go on sale on Ticketmaster to American Express cardholders at 12 Noon tomorrow, April 17th, and to the public at 3 p.m. In addition, the show will be streamed live on Vevo (at www.youtube.com/JackWhiteVEVO), with Gary Oldman directing the webcast. [Update: Read a review of "Blunderbuss" by Greg Kot of the Chicago Tribune here.]

Spencer Krug, best known for his work in the bands Wolf Parade and Sunset Rubdown; see video below); new releases from indie bands the ArkellsMaps & Atlases, and Dry the River; Canadian alt-rockers Our Lady Peace, back with their first album in three years; And there's "The Pearl Sessions," a collection of music recorded by Janis Joplin during, as you'd no doubt guess, the sessions for her "Pearl" album.
